October is for…

What I’m up to this month and a heads-up on some of the giveaways coming your way! 

Starting / To paint the dining room, since I didn’t get to it again last month. (This is getting embarrassing.) And I’d love to get going on a simple wall hanging from this book, but there’s the kids’ Halloween costumes to figure out too. (Have you seen Studio DIY’s new costume shop?)

Eating / Allison Day’s morning glory pumpkin muffins (can’t get enough of them!) and roasted butternut squash (can’t get enough of it!).

Reading / In The Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists, and EntrepreneursSolutions for Cold Feet and Other Little Problems, Cabin Porn: Inspiration For Your Quiet Place Somewhere, Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love, and Writing, Sweet! Celebrations: A My Cupcake Addiction Cookbook; Deep Run Roots: Stories and Recipes from My Corner of the South and the October issue of Today’s Parent, which has so many cute ideas for Halloween. Watch for chances to win this month!

Trying / Bounce Canada’s new Bites, The Taste Box (a new Canadian subscription box launching this month), and Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day household cleaners and hand soap (coming to Canada in January) and sharing giveaways for all three!

Wearing / Living in running gear (yes I’m running again!): these super comfy pants, this tee, and a cozy hoodie.

Watching / On Netflix: Under the Tuscan Sun, Joy (out today) and Russell Peters: Almost Famous (October 7). Oh and I’m gonna finish Suits.

Wanting / These chairs (yes pink!), this cookbook (I love Molly Yeh!), this throw (damn you Anthropologie and your ridiculously good-looking everything!) and this soup and sandwich set, which is even cuter in person.

What are you starting/reading/wearing/watching this month?
